After giving Amplify-ers an exclusive early doors showing at Amplify ‘11, Venessa Miemis’s Future Of Facebook project is now officially live. Launched on CNN.com yesterday, this Open Foresight program sets out to explore the impact social networking technologies are having on our lives through a series of 6 videos. Watch the first video below and be sure to check out the Future Of Facebook site for loads more great info on this constantly evolving, crowdsourced project.
This video explains how much social media has affected us. It is now the norm to visit sites daily and find out what they have to offer. I found it interesting in how it says the news finds us instead, which is true and a very good way in showing how easy it has become to receive information. The video states that social media is the next big thing after the industrial revolution. That really made me think what will come next.
A view of the big events that happened in social media in 2012. These events include: Facebook Timeline, SOPA, KONY and President Obama's re-election , they were just some of the big social media stories of 2012. See what else happened this year.
Google+: There's more to explore. Becomes even more personalised for it's users with the interface design changes. Group video chats and personalizing the navigation ribbon could increase more users on Google+ and a decrease on Facebook.
